How to Rapidly Create a Self-Sustaining Business
Why I Wrote this Book
Growing a business is simpler than you might think. Business growth is actually a well-defined and predictable process. Let me ask you, “if you knew what to do and when to do it, wouldn’t growing your business be much simpler?”
The problem is nobody’s teaching you the process! I have looked. Most organizations providing business owners with technical assistance are focused on teaching the tactical functions of business.
While tactics are important, which tactics and how you apply them change depending on your stage of growth. So, you may be taking the wrong actions at the wrong time. This will slow down your growth, or could do damage to your company in the process.
This was the “ah ha moment” I had more than 5 years ago. It put me on a quest. A pursuit to find a way to more effectively describe how tactics should be applied at different stages of a business’ maturity.
As I began doing my research what I found is very interesting. I found hundreds of growth models out there. Heck, I was introduced to this concept myself when getting my MBA way back in 1987. So this isn’t a new concept, but why isn’t this a more mainstream part of small business training.
First, as I found models out on the web, they came in all shapes and size. I found 3 stages. I found 5 stages. I found 7 stages. What was the right number of stages for a small businesses growth?
I settled on one that I have used as the basis for ALL our consulting and training for the past 5 years with great success. The video below gives a quick overview of the model:[/vc_column_text][videoembed type=”youtube” ratio=”sixteen_by_nine” id=”video_0″ url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDLkjYpuzow” shadow=”yes”][vc_column_text]
I wanted to see more business owners apply this idea because it works. Those clients that embrassed the approach and applied it realize their dream of personal independence and financial freedom. The decision most people make the decision to take the step to go out on their own. This book is my way of helping more owners how to have that independence and financial freedom they dreamed of in the beginning by teaching about the business growth cycle!
Think of the growth cycle as a strategic roadmap through which a business travels as it matures. The roadmap tells you what to do, and when to do it to get to the next level of maturity in your business. As a result, you will now know which tactical actions are necessary. So, you’ll know what courses to take or what books or resources to read to educated yourself. Or, you can hire the right advisor to help you or employee to do the work for you to get you to the next level of success.
